    GOB 10 Year Anniversary Celebration Event

    Saturday Oct 13th, 11.30 - Midnight


    This October represents GOB Retail's 10 year anniversary as a game and comic store. The store opened for business on Oct 15th, 2008. Perhaps not the wisest time to open a new retail store, with the economy at the time in shambles, but with your support, the store survived and grew. Four and a half years ago, when we outgrew our original location and moved to Clawson, we expaned to become Michigan's largest game and comic shop.

    We would like to thank all of our great customers for helping GOB Retail to become the store it is today. To celebrate our 10 year annivesary, we are hosting a grand day of games and promotions this Saturday (October 13th). We will be open 11:30am to Midnight and be running an all day mini con full of (mostly) free gaming. As part of the celebration, we will be running a drawing to give away (5) GOB Retail Gift Certificates worth $50 each. Anyone who plays in one or more of the events planned for that day will get an entry for a chance at one or more of those gift cards. You can review a list of events planned and their launch times below (with more details on each further below).

    We've dug through all of our assorted promotional items and are pulling out all of the stops for special prizes and give aways for these events. Also stay tuned for additional announcements throughout the week for more information on the 10 year anniversary.
